Miss River Creel Survey underway

5 posts in this topic

Hey folks just to let you all know, The DNR is doing a Creel or angler survey between St. Cloud and Coon Rapids Dams.

All they need is information and a little bit of your time. We are trying to assess the effectiveness of the 12-20" protected slot limit on smallies. We did one back in '92 and '97 so this should help us out big time in figuring out how pressure, harvest, regulation compliance and angler demographics have changed.

Thanks for your support. So please help us out. grin.gif

Don't freak out if this boat comes roaring at you, the dog didn't bite him so he's OK.

He's just doing his job with the creel survey.

Good thing SH talks dog or he wouldn't have got much information from Suzie, she's under 12 so she don't need a licence, thats not his job to ask anyway. smile.gif

That's Suzies rod stuck in a dock pipe, SH uses an elecro boat when he fishes during working hours. blush.gifblush.gif

Well the last creel survey was in 97. I could scan and convert to pdf if we receive requests. Other than that we have all the electrofishing and telemetry data available on the Montrose area Fisheries site... Montrose Area Fisheries site

Hope this helps. grin.gif

      Yes the Navonics phone app is as accurate as more expensive ones and you don't need to spend the extra $$ on another unit!  The app costs under $10!!

      Hopefully things will start to happen soon.  The next 15 days of overnight lows are starting to stay below freezing. Maybe a few test holes will have to happen for me next week!!

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Looks like we might have walkable ice in 2 weeks
